“He is a young guy who could play a number of positions for us. He can get his first grade experience that way – a bit like Jack Welsby has done. We are very excited about how he develops in our system.”
Daniel Hill will hope to follow in the footsteps of Alex Walmsley, James Bentley and Joe Batchelor who all made a seamless step up to Super League with Saints after being plucked from the Championship.
Hill said: “I am over the moon to sign for Saints. I want to thank everyone at Widnes who have helped me over the past six years, including all the coaches and the players.
“I am now looking forward to the new challenge of moving back into a full-time environment. I’ll be learning off the best players in the league which will hopefully improve my game.”
